More of a seasonal and weekend outdoor type mall. Eateries include a halal steers and other options. Nu metro cinemas on site. Ample free parking accessible from Second Avenue. Boardwalk hotel upgraded, very nice. Directly across the famous hobie beach.

Cannot comment on the Casino as it is separate to the actual boardwalk. The boardwalk is not really a place to shop but is more geared towards wining and dining & entertainment. It has some retail shops. The best feature in the musical fountain with...More

We went to watch the light show and it was spectacular. The choice of music was incredible and the way the water and lights played along with the music was beautiful.

It was a rainy day and most places had their doors closed making it quite uninviting. There really is nothing to do here unless you fancy gambling.. Had a wander around and left to find something more interesting.

Unfortunately The Boardwalk has become very boring. Doesnt offer much. We only go there to watch a movie if we in the area and bored. I think they perhaps need to get better entertainment and restaurants. So much potential

This hotel is very well positioned being right on the waterfront, with a sandy beach ( with life guards), and a "pier" just over the road. It is all part of a general waterfront complex which has many good eating areas to choose from and...More

Nice place to try your lucky. The bad thing is that the entrance is a smoking area, so we had to go through it to arrive to the non smoking area. Besides that, this is a place to visit if you go to PE.

The best value for money is to buy the package of movie, small meal and tenpin (I think it is) at Lighthouses - that cost is R185 for all of it. Best you budget R150 for a movie if you are going to want to get snacks. The... More
